Halloween is that spooky time of year most of us think about werewolves, vampires, curses, and potions. For a small but vocal portion of holiday fans, however, the season is defined by an ongoing ideological battle that may never end. Is The Nightmare Before Christmas a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie? No one knows the answer, but that doesn't stop people from feeling very strongly one way or the other, and this year is no different.
Nightmare Before Christmas the best Halloween movie. Don't debate me on this.— Myles (@mmthegrizzly) October 23, 2017
I'm drawing a line in the sand. The nightmare before Christmas is a CHRISTMAS MOVIE and there is no debate.— Maxwell Rogers (@GravyMind69) October 24, 2017

Hot take: it's a thanksgiving movie (It was the one vaguely kid-appropriate movie at my grandparents' apartment, so it became a tradition)— Hindi Kornbluth (@Hindividual) October 20, 2017
that's the opening number, which takes place as Halloween comes to a close. The entire rest of the film takes place between 11/1 and 12/25— Orianna Scafidi (@oscafidi) October 23, 2017
To ad fuel to the fire it was released in theaters on October 29, 1993.— Nolan George (@PsychoNolGeo) October 23, 2017
October to the end of December is just one big holiday in my mind anyways.— Tuhfa Begum (@tuhfawrites) October 20, 2017
The reason why you watch The Nightmare Before Christmas in November and not at either Halloween or Christmas is because..,— Mia Elizabeth Sancto (@miasancto) October 25, 2017
1) That’s when it set.— Mia Elizabeth Sancto (@miasancto) October 25, 2017
2) The Holiday between Christmas and Halloween in the UK is Bon fire night.
4)while in the States it’s Thanksgiving.
4)November is after October and before December therefore the nightmare before Christmas is neither a Christmas nor a Halloween film— Mia Elizabeth Sancto (@miasancto) October 25, 2017
Finally, When do you think the right time to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas?— Mia Elizabeth Sancto (@miasancto) October 25, 2017
What's important is that we all watch The Nightmare Before Christmas every year in October, November, or December.
